fall approaches fast


The days grow shorter, it is getting colder. Fall is coming. The leaves are turning and the sun is showing less.  I love autumn. Because of all the fun stuff we do when the cold season comes. I love movie nights and the togetherness on a cold evening. And of course, I like to snuggle when it is getting colder.

This picture from chicadecasa really means end of summer to me. The turning leaves are always a highlight for me.  I really loved her words on this picture so I chose to share them and remind us of a fresh start.

"I was walking along, in wonderment at the suddenly cool weather and the excitement of fall, when I saw this lone leaf lying on the ground. I carried it along with me until I found the perfect place to photograph it. The simple falling of a leaf is something most people don't pause to ponder, but it can mean so many different things. It can symbolize a beginning or an end. It can stand for falling from a great height or being picked up at your lowest point. It can point to the fact that the possibilities of summer are gone, and the chill of winter is on the horizon, or it can remind one that with the changing of seasons comes a fresh outlook on life. To me, it's a little of all of them."

Die Tage werden kürzer, es wird kälter. Der Herbst kommt. Die Blätter wechseln ihre Farben und auch die Sonne zeigt sich weniger. Ich liebe Herbst. Weil wir eine Menge Spass haben an kalten Herbsttagen.
Ich liebe Filmabende und das zusammen sein an einem kalten Tag. Und natuerlich mag ich es an kalten Tagen zu kuscheln.
Das Bild von  chicadecasa bedeutet Herbst für mich. Der Farbenwechsel der Blätter ist immer ein besonderes Highlight. Ich mag die Worte die sie zusammen mit ihrem Bild gepostet hat, deswegen habe ich mich entschieden, diese mit euch zu teilen. Sie erinnern mich an einen neuen Start.

Love, Suki

Suki - Beautiful!! I want to explore along the path you photographed, and see the signs of the end of summer. And the photo from chicadecasa is just wonderful, with the color contrast and perfection of the leaf.

Fall is my absolute favorite. I love sweaters, wooly socks, and boots... unfortunately I now live in FL. :)

Thanks so much for choosing my photo for the blog! Tammy, I agree with you about the sweaters and boots! You'll have to drive up north sometime this fall so you can enjoy the leaves falling!
